Review for Dr. Rifkin

Dr. Kakkar and his staff were very warm and friendly . I was called and asked if I would like to come in earlier for my appointment, that they had a cancellation and an appointment had opened up. I was very happy about this. Dr. Kakkar took his time and answered all my questions.

Review for Dr. Kakkar

Dr. Rifkin saved my life. He is the smartest doctor I know who always is upbeat and cheerful. I know he will help me with any concern and he has a wonderful bedside manner that always puts me at ease. I highly recommend him.

Review for Dr. Rifkin

I had a wonderful consultation with Dr. Janssen. He described with clarity my situation and my surgical option. He conveyed no rush and answered all my questions. Very generous with his time. He was kind and sensitive to my pain. I will most likely continue my treatment with him.
